O wende dich zu Jesus hin

Representative Text

1 O wende dich zu Jesus hin,
zu Ihm, zu Ihm allein!
Dann bringt Sein Leben dir Gewinn,
du wirst errettet sein.

2 O hänge an die Welt dich nicht,
nur trüglich gibt sie Glück;
zu Jesus kehr dein Angesicht
und blicke nicht zurück!

3 Du kannst nie wahrhaft glücklich sein,
bleibst du dem Heiland fern.
O Mensch geh doch zum Frieden ein,
nimm Jesus an als Herrn!

4 Selbst wird dein Sterben dann Gewinn,
es bringt dir ewges Glück.
Drum wende dich zu Jesus hin:
Du willst nie mehr zurück!
